Theres K Agdler

Theres K Agdler (1969) born and raised in Switzerland. She has been living and working in Sweden since 2000. She has a background as a writer and has worked as an artist since 2016. Theres K Agdler studied for her BFA at Trondheim Academy of Fine Art in Norway and the Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm. Her work revolves around questions about peripheries and centres, and how resources are distributed, both nationally and globally. Her work is research-based, manifesting as site-specific investigations using photography, film, installation, sculpture, performance, sound, and text. 

The project BROTTET – the quarry/crime is an investigation into a microhistory situated in a global rhizome of capitalist structures. The project studies the effects of industrialisation and the colonialisation of the North. In the 19th century, the North of Sweden was called “Framtidslandet”, the land of the future. Yet also in this period processes of industrial and colonial exploitation began effecting land, water, and people. At Slakthuset Theres K Agdler shows a spatial installation with sound and a film.
